Q3 2023 Investment of Fincard Holdings & Global Ventures

The third quarter of 2023 has seen a mixed bag of results from the venture capital industry. Though there has been a noticeable upturn in some areas, there has been caution in the funding climate overall. Fincard Holdings’ Investment Director, Mr.Lucas Truong, offers his professional analysis of recent occurrences.

Venture-backed tech companies are returning to the public markets with caution after a protracted absence. Significant IPOs from well-known businesses like Instacart and Klaviyo, which indicate a renewed level of activity, point to a possible warming of the IPO market. According to Lucas, “This is a cautiously optimistic signal, potentially setting the stage for more tech listings in 2024.”

AI and Tech field Dynamics:

As evidenced by Anthropic’s significant fundraising round, the AI field continues to draw significant investment. According to Lucas Truong, “The confidence in AI investments, even amid a broader funding slowdown, underscores the sector’s resilience and long-term promise.” Similar sentiments are reflected in the substantial investments made in other digital fields, such as cloud data, where organizations such as Databricks have been able to secure sizable finance.


Changes in Late-Stage investment by Geography:

Late-stage investment has increased, especially outside of North America. In industries like semiconductors, electric cars, and sustainable energy technology, Asia and Europe are seeing rapid growth. “The shift towards markets outside North America is a notable trend, diversifying the investment landscape,” says Lucas.

A worldwide shift in priorities towards environmental sustainability is also reflected in the rising investment focus in Asia and Europe on industries like semiconductors and sustainable energy technology. “Investing in green technology not only yields environmental benefits but also proves to be a smart investment choice in the current market context,” stated Mr. Harry from.

Early and Seed Stage Concerns:

Early and seed funding has significantly decreased in comparison to the late-stage growth. As Mr. Lucas notes, “The decline in seed and early-stage funding is concerning for innovation’s future. The development of innovative concepts and technology depends on these funding stages. The growth of innovative technologies and startups may slow down if they don’t receive enough assistance in these early stages.”


“A healthy tech sector thrives on a diverse range of ideas and solutions,” Mr. Harry retorted. This diversity could become more limited with less early-stage investment, which could hinder innovation and creativity.

Even while late-stage investments are significant, the tech industry’s ability to continue growing and evolving depends on having a strong early-stage funding pipeline. Investors, governments, and business executives must all understand this and make an effort to help early-stage businesses.

Global financial Environment:

The world’s financial environment is still slowing down, even with large expenditures made in fields like artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and sustainability. Lucas of Fincard Holdings explains further: “Investors are adjusting to the uncertainty in the global economy by taking a cautious attitude. They are being more picky, concentrating on industries like artificial intelligence and sustainable technologies that offer steady, long-term growth. Nonetheless, the total reduction in investment suggests a more general trend of risk aversion, which may be brought on by market volatility and economic difficulties.”

Mr. Harry adds that although focused investments are important, it’s also critical to have a comprehensive understanding of the funding situation. “Investing extensively in some industries while ignoring others may cause imbalances in the IT sector. Long-term benefits from a more diverse investing strategy could include increased market resilience and dynamism.

In terms of data reporting and methodology, Mr. Lucas emphasizes the importance of precise and thorough data analysis. “Having access to accurate and comprehensive data is essential in an environment as complicated and quickly changing as venture capital.

In conclusion, the observations highlight the necessity of a thoughtful and impartial approach in the venture capital industry. Narrowing the focus on tactical, diverse investments and depending on precise, open data are essential for negotiating the complexity of today’s international funding landscape.

The venture capital market is depicted in a complex light in the third quarter of 2023. Although some industries are doing well, the general trend points to caution. According to Lucas, “Navigating this landscape requires a balanced strategy, focusing on high-growth potential sectors while being mindful of broader economic challenges.”
